Ubuntu is a consistent work in progress. After every major release
they take the code base and extend it with certain goals. There are 2
major releases a year each with goals to meet.
The time between releases has daily (sometimes twice a day) builds with
changes. We test the changes and submit problems we have.
There are no betas in the conventional sense. Just rolling builds.
12.10 is going to be released in a number of weeks. So if there is an
issue with API from GTK3 not playing with GTK2 nice someone (from
lazarus) should file a report so when 12.10 comes out - Lazarus 1.1 will
compile and work as Lazarus users need.
From a business standpoint, imo, Lazarus is the best thing for Linux,
so targeting the best distro for maximum quality is very wise. It is
acceptable if some distros don't work well - but it is imperative that
the top distros are supported with quality.

Ubuntu is the high-end linux distro - as it compares to OSX and Windows
